My computer went completely down Monday night and I have been without it all week. I have a new motherboard ordered for it that will hopefully be here Monday or Tuesday. My son has loaned me his laptop for the time being so I am somewhat up and running. I am definitely headed to Tunica next month for the first three events of the WSOP Circuit. If anyone is going and would like to meet up while we're there, let me know.
Huge Congrats to my co-worker Rufus for winning The Mookie this week.
I'm throwing a bounty on myself for the fund raiser tourney that Mookie is setting up. I'll post it as soon as it's finalized.
Good luck at the tables this week everyone!!!

Edit: Woo Hoooo!!! <----I was hoping to take the whole thing down but I'll take a final table for my first night back. Props to Gordokong who finished in the money as well!!!

Heads Up

I'm in a heads up tournament on Stars. It started with 198 players. I am through to the 4th round and we are down to 32 and in the money. It's a 20+2 so the money starts getting pretty good soon. If I can survive a few more rounds, I have a chance to pick up a nice little score. I'll post the results in a bit.

Edit: I'm out in 14th place. I had a big lead in my final match but failed to finish the job. I played a couple of hands poorly in this match....very disappointing...not to lose, but to deserve to lose.

WWdN:The Not and The Donk2Shark Tournies

A few days ago I was watching Matt at a final table in a $20+2 180 player tourney and I noticed L8Bloomer was railing someone at the same table. I think it was Johnny Outlaw but I'm not positive of that. He invited me to come play his private tourney on Thursday nights. I signed up for it and asked Matt if he wanted to play it. He was in a re-buy with WeakPlayer and wanted to focus on that. I also invited Steve and he said sure. Good decision on his part because he won the thing!! It's a fun tourney and I recommend it. Just click the link above to L8Bloomer's blog for tourney info if you would like to play it next week.
As Steve and I got close to the final table, it was apparent we would still be playing when the WWdN: The Not started. I went out in the Donk2Shark tourney shortly thereafter but Steve 2-tabled his way to the money in both, winning the Donk2Shark and getting 3rd in The Not.
The cards were hitting me right between the eyes in the WWdN and I just rolled right through the tourney. I don't take winning one of these lightly and I was thrilled to win!!!
I hope more of you can play the WWdN: The Not next week. Darval and Lok have done a tremendous job keeping that tourney alive and I would love to see it start drawing a bigger crowd. They even moved the start time up a bit for the East Coast crowd so come on gang, let's show our appreciation!!!!
I've been trying like a madman possessed to win a seat in the Million on Stars this week. I've come close a few times but no big news yet.
Good luck at the tables this week everyone!!!

Hoy Or No Hoy....I Hoyed

I "hoyed" and bluffed and bet my way to first place in The Hoy tonight. I warned you guys about those change ups and knuckle balls I'm working on.... :)
It was a small turn out of only 10 and I admittedly got extremely lucky on the last hand against jeciimd when he was miles ahead getting his money in and I hit my long shot. I am very pleased that I was able to come back from being down to 475 chips early.
I'm on a mission to qualify for a big tourney this week. We'll see how it goes.....
Good luck at the tables this week everyone!!!

Workplace Humour

Warning: Non-poker content
We have a new shipping and receiving clerk. In efforts to organize his day he posted his own to-do list. I added one more task to his list.

Injury Report

I strained my arm a bit while throwing one of my famous split-fingered fast raises so I've been forced to develop a new change-up and I'm experimenting a little with a knuckle ball. If you get in the way of one of these new pitches next week in "The Mookie" don't say I didn't warn you.
Wish me luck this weekend....I've got some tough games lined up with some serious chip-slingers and I plan on tilting them every last one.....cheers.

Connection Woes

I arrived home Wednesday night just fifteen minutes before Mookie's weekly tournament started. I logged in and immediately the problems began. I would lose connection after about 3 minutes and have to completely reboot the computer to get a connection back. I'm guessing that during the tournament I was seeing about 5% of the hands that were played. If I had any kind of starting hand at all the only thing I could do was push all-in with it because there was a large chance that I would be disconnected by the flop. It's very frustrating to be in that situation, but there was not much I could do about it. Sorry if it caused delays on the tables I was on.

Flash forward to Friday night. My connection appears to be working just fine tonight, but I'm testing it by playing a 3 dollar tourney. It started with 1,456 players and we are just now in the money with 200 left in. I'm in great shape with over 40,000 chips and no connection problems so far.....yaaaaaaaa!!!!!
